Director, Talent Life Cycle Processes

Persado, New York, NY

Persado unlocks the power of words, the foundational DNA of marketing


Duration: Full-Time

Who We Are

Persado is a pure-play AI company that’s changing the way Fortune 500 companies communicate with their customers by unlocking the power of words and transforming the way ideas are born. Among others, we work with GAP, Dell, Verizon, Humana and 8 of the top 10 U.S. credit card companies, including JP Morgan Chase and American Express.

In an ecosystem that’s obsessed with personalization –the right offer, the right product, the right segment– we believe that the right message is the one core functional need for every company in the world, making the Choice of Words a multi-billion dollar blind spot for Silicon Valley.

We are the only company with the technology to claim that blind spot in the Enterprise Personalization stack.
